"And my books that i read everything i had written and read since the age of seven and was searching for patterns. You know and i realized that what i was searching for wasn't just practices for revolutionary. Loved that were taken from lived experience. I also wanted to be sure. They were backed by research. So i put together a team of scholars neuroscience ethics education psychology history to be reading with me and researching with me. So as i wrote no stranger. I'd be getting these memos with and you'll see the end of the book has forty pages of footnotes of notes that that show. How deeply researched is as a manifesto and what ended up happening in in in that whole process was saying. Oh love you know. I'm a lawyer anytime anyone would say. The word love like i would roll. My eyes like love is the answer. You want me to with what we're up against the institutions that are perpetuating injustice. I realized in this in this process that the problem was never with love. It's the way we talk about it. How do we go back to the love. As the muscular ethic that was given to us from our scriptures in songs how do we put that into practice and so i began to define love as sweet labor. Fierce bloody imperfect life giving a choice that we make again and again and if love is labor we don't have to get on mystical about it. If love is labor love can be talked. Love can be modeled. Love can be practiced. What are the tools that we need. What are the core practices that we need. These ten core practices emerged. You know wonder grieve. Fight rage listen. Reimagined breathe push transition joy. Let joy in and i began to imagine these practices as points on a compass and we organize them in such a way that we created the revolutionary love compass. So you can. You can point the compass to other and you'll see the practices that you might need to exercise your practicing what it means to see no stranger. You can point the compass to opponent. And i don't use the word enemy. An enemy enemies a permanent position. But an opponent someone can slide into that that category in and out. And if it's if it's orientation to you this is someone who's opposing your way of being or your ideas than than your your inclination is to is going to be two to humanize them to think of them as monstrous but the core practice. Here's to tend the wound. I've come to realize that there. No such thing as monsters in this world. they're only human beings who are wounded. Who act out of their own security or blindness agreed. That doesn't make them any less dangerous. But when we choose to see the humanity of even them we can awaken to the context the cultures the institutions. That drive that harm and we've become smarter about not just resisting but reimagining the context as a whole. So that's how we practice oriented to an opponent and then you turn the compass one more time to ourselves. So revolutionary love is the choice to labor for others for our opponents and for ourselves and this is what so. Many social reformers skipped over. You know the gandhi king mandela. They taught us a lot about it. A love others and opponents but not at length about how to love ourselves. This is the feminists intervention. This is me going back to black women. Leaders bell hooks audrey lord who teach us that caring for ourselves part of the the revolutionary work so here are practices for has to stay longevity resilience even joy in that ongoing labor. And i have to tell you..

"Go to listen tab at make sure you pick your platform of choice where you're gonna review the show at. I'm gonna kick it to you now calill before we started this conversation. We're gonna do it. We sometimes do that sir. A little bit about ourselves last time we asked. Would you rather play strip poker with strangers or truth or dare with your enemies this week. We are asking. We'd rather only watch marvel movies or only watched dc comic movies. So that's a really hard question. Because i'm a fan of both worlds however i mean if we had to do or die. Pick a choice. I would probably go with marvel of in an ideal world. I would say that you know you'd wanna have both and you for me. It's a pretty easy choice because if you just look at the quality of what was produced so far even though dc has one of the best action movies ever made of all time. They haven't created the saga that moral has with the vendors may marvel they even have other exciting series as well so unfortunately. Dc has not produced the same sort of content. So i'm just going with the marble. The currently where i'm at. So we're in alignment there and i don't think that makes me radical for loving marvel right so does loving your race make you radical nice transition. I'm gonna go right into answer. So i settled across the same by audrey lowered a harlem born poet and civil rights activists That really rings true to my soul and this was found on. I don't know how to say the website name but i'll spell it out m. e. n. n. o. e. m. i. Ssi mennonite the. I dunno it. Yeah i've heard of mennonite mission okay. Cool said the quote is as follows. If i didn't define myself for myself i wouldn't be crunched into other people's fantasies for me eaten alive and that's a really extreme quote and it's really exciting image. That comes to mind. But the thing of why i think audrey lord said that is because when it comes to identity especially black identity in america if we don't define it for ourselves in them were forced to live in be subjugated to the ideas and contracts of what blackness is to others and usually. That's not in alignment with what we want for ourselves. Right so If you don't define yourself than you will essentially be demolished by what other people perceive you to be so does loving your race make you a radical. No because loving your race means you are going to help define your race and promote your race and obliterates now what becomes an issue is if loving your race makes you harm other races or discriminate against other communities absolutely not but the pure act of loving who you are in the race that you're part of no problem on my end how about you that's points semitic of we gotta take into account what love of a raise means versus just standing up for this perceived. Raise the thing that we called race. Because i think some people go out of their way to put down other so-called races that's like that's the wrong part of it kind of like you were saying but if you just love what you're perceived as having that be wrong because it's just a perception anyway..

Everything is Technocratic everything is what people call solution ism the idea that you can make an app or algorithm for anything that big data can solve anything. D think their current trends That are trickling down. To how every day person thinks do you think they're going to further entrench these types of problems that have historically stymied black movements from getting off the ground or the think that A lot of black people on the ground are going to find ways to to paraphrase to paraphrase audrey lord find ways to use the master's tools to dismantle the master's house.

I don't know if i'll be able to make us point but i think all does reflects Technology and technological eras which we find ourselves so if you look at the movements that talks about everything moves at a slower pace but it builds into more europe way and you were talking about the silicon valley mindset. I think a lot of politics. Now they They move and they're determined by virality By rally in the sense of like you know if you have something that works it will spread like wildfire but also have a very short lived or very short shelf life. i do think that's been a big influence And the other thing. I guess yeah i thought was really interesting. You guys talking about cybernetics if you go back.

"This is a long standing reality that we need to be more open about it's not that. We're suddenly going to persuade those conservative women to give up their affiliations to the Republican party to conservative politics and two white patriarchal power structures, but we need to figure out the ways that the white women who are angry on behalf of a more progressive and more inclusive future can do the work of expanding electorate the electorate looking to women of color for leadership in terms of how to go forward acknowledging that members of their demographic are in some ways compromised and and ways in which the white women in which women can become angry and progressive ways that wind up getting us to a better place. That's an interesting idea that you just bought up real quick before that you go. The idea that women of color black women specifically in America have been at the forefront of so many movements, and we like the ROY Moy elections. You black women as a block have always been focused and. Progressively-minded? And so what you're saying. Then is white women need to take a cue from black women. How do you begin that conversation? And the disconnect between white women who was saying like, oh, we're the angry ones taking this black rooms like we've been angry. We've got. Yes. Yes. There is a disconnect. There's there's anger, and I believe that that anger between potential allies needs to be expressed. And I'm not the first to believe this is what Audrey Lord is writing about in the in the nineteen eighties that the anger about racism within a women's movement must be expressed. If we're to move forward, and and be productive and generative in terms of where we wanna go and for and for more solid coalitions. But it is absolutely true. That black women who have seen no incentive from white patriot. They don't get patriarchy, and they don't get white supremacy, and that has to some degree permitted them to be the groundbreaking thinkers organizers leaders of so many progressive movements. And yes when white women get woken up as they have over the past two years. That's necessary. That's correct. Why women should be angry about inequity not just that they experienced but the other vulnerable people around them experience. But there is a tendency because they have more power to come in and appropriate and behave as though. Maybe they we I. Whoa. Stop the answer. You. Invented anger, right? That we need to we. That's part of what we need to talk about. No, no. We did not invent it. We did not create it. We did not create protests. And in fact, it is crucial that we looked to those who have been angry active progressive and revolutionary before us for cues direction and leadership as we move into the future. And that's part of what happened yesterday. Look at the women of color who are elected yesterday. That that's one step. That's that's the that's one step. We need to look at transforming political parties. And and our activists coalitions and looking women of color for leadership like you so much for being able to..

"He would expect it to be like, okay, let's go and cook. Daughter cook from me kind of. Leaks lane -able because so the when so her mother is trying to get her in order saying each, your hap- probably should learn to cook and stuff. And I think it's because that she has also been dampened and she even says like, well, in the was of Leslie who says, why doesn't she see the? I'm trying to ease her her transition. And I think is that transition from being a fiery independent child, Nova child purchase a fiery individual, an individual who is who is without the the shots of of society and an end, the teachings that turn you into a woman and what that, what the identity of being a modern day woman looks like and her mother's trying to ease her into that transition like be a woman that is that is palpable men. A woman that. Submits be a woman that cooks and cleans and desert. Do your role sensually don't be this other thing that I do not know how to manage because I have also been taught this way, and it really reminds me of. What's it quiet? She wrote down, it's a poem by Lord, and I love it. I told you guys to read out if you have is called how to raise a woman. I resigned today anyways. Basically, she says that instead of earth cooled instead of a letter of congratulations upon your book and your daughter, when you when you say you are who you say, you are racing to be a correct little sister any exposed the fears of raising the daughters in the past and with the antiquated views of like. Internalized misogyny. Essentially, one thing that that Audrey Lord rights is for I am already a sister corrected already raised up. We are landscapes Tony printed upon them as security as water issues feather on stone. So it's I think I almost feel sorry for the mother because she's, she has already been corrected. She's she's had liked dimmed and she just wants daughter to be put in place what she knows what she knows of that bond between father was just wrong that you could feel the the lament like feel the pain. Yeah, but wasn't I don't think is that the story is that the the story where when she's born, the grandparents are saying. That's not one that one. I think I think glory. Yeah. The end about this, this one where the end shifts the gneration shift and Leslie doesn't really beautifully where he kind of sits there. Imagining what his daughter will be like when he goes when she goes to America. Sorry, and the changes that overcome her and how she transitions between a Nigerian gull to an idea, ran woman living in the states. And, and I think that the flip I think in ration-. Where he's literally just sat someway explained like telling us how it's going to happen. When I see this, I see this and was almost like, and then it happens. I think that was so cool kind of reminds me of the end of things fall apart. Yeah. Sudden yes, dumpy fli. But from the rhythm of life really isn't it like you have to have the moments where your anticipation happens day changes, boom, this is it. Now how do we deal with that kind of thing by let my story. I love my favorite favorite little come onto your famous so which was my favorite. I did like vote. Oh, I just like what dental volcano, because we're gonna. While interesting because so right about so wild was about trying to get a name, anything. They mentioned names in there.

So that she was the first gonna feminist that I read that all of her like theories and thinking resonated with me not only because she was the Hanukkah. She was queer.

I have this tattoo right here and it's one of her quotes while tongues can't be tamed. Right. So you think about it like it's all about like you no matter who I am, I could be at the university like I'm still who I am right. Like I'm gonna show up as authentic as possible, right? We always have to shift and we talked about that a little bit in the past. We have to shift a little bit to survive in euro patriarchal environments, but as much as possible.
